much. i do appreciate you making time for me. just ahead senators john mccain and lindsay graham sounded optimistic after meeting with president obama on immigration reform. what it means for the prospects of a bipartisan deal. we'll speak with congressman luis gutierrez and alan grayson. plus the state of illinois is one step closer to marriage equality. we'll bring you the details ahead. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly
being on the national ticket to run for president? >> no, i don't think it excludes him. john mccain was never a big fan of cpac and certainly didn't maintain much of a presence there. i'm not sure he spoke there in 2008 even if i recall correctly he did not. and i think that may have been a conscious choice on his part. i don't think it necessarily harms christie. you know, ultimately, i think that being in a position to go and speak to people at cpac does give you the opportunity to have a wider audience for your views and to make sure that conservatives are hearing it. and i think that's beneficial for conservatives. i think as joan said, it would be helpful at this point where i think there is a lot of concern about modernization within the conservative movement if we had as many voices as possible within that gathering. but at the end of the day, i don't think it hurts christie per se. >> very narrow right now. cpac has chosen that they will throw loyalists to the party right outside. it's now to me there is certainly two parties here. they're just by banner under one umbrella.
john mccain unfriending him on facebook, is there going to be any lasting impact from this rancor or bitterness? >> perhaps further filibusters of more important -- secretary of defense maybe another supreme court justice. i can see a filibuster of the supreme court justice. >> but didn't they damage their ability to do that because at a certain point, is the fatigue setting in. even the rabid supporters of the tea parties and the lindsey graham you keep filibustering everything and everybody they'll crack. >> john: not to mention all of the time they spent screaming benghazi at a man who had nothing to do with benghazi. >> he didn't do himself any favors with the testimony. it was really -- >> john: i haven't seen a performance like that since obama's first debate. we'll take a break and my panel and i will see about glenn beck. with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines. real, gripping, current. documentaries... on current tv. >> john: i hate to bring bad news but glenn beck is still having a hard time getting along with people outside his bubble. now he
cabinet nominees are going to be filibustered. john mccain has been pushing that line, but what he has been pushing is not true. republicans in fact broke this rule and broke precedent for nothing, and there is no sign yet that even they know why. just amazing. before we go, one update on our breaking news on the primary election in chicago. that just happened tonight. this is the election to replace jesse jackson jr. in congress >>> tonight, washington prepares us. how can nothing be the biggest news of the day? >> so what happens if this sequester kicks in. >> sequestration equals unemployment. >> fear not, congress is back to work. >> i don't sense a lot of urgency. >> we have moved the bill in the house twice. we should not have to move a third bill before the senate gets off their ass, before the senate gets off their ass. >> in the quote of the day. >> the republican leadership says what would pass bills next year. >> we should not have to move a third bill. >> there is no house bill. >> that was a different congress. >> with this congress. >> get the job done. >> this is a chanc
's delegation, senator john mccain, when i say this sequester will be devastating for arizona. it's bad for hardworking americans and it turns a blind eye to my state's proud effort and proven perseverance. i affirm my commitment to working with anybody who is willing to put our differences aside and put the people we serve first. we still have time to stop this. let's roll up our sleeves together and get the work done. thank you, madam speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, madam speaker. madam speaker, i rise today because we have to get our fiscal house in order, but sequestration is not the way to do it. there is no question we need to address our unsustainable debt and deficit. our debt remains above 73% of g.d.p., up from 36% just six years ago. and our deficit still hovers just below $1 trillion. but the solution must be a big, balanced, and bipartisan deficit reduction plan monitored like plans like cooper-latourette, not the meat ax approach of sequest
and not doing it in a dumb way. senators like john mccain have made similar statements to what scott said. your republican governor, along with other governors around the country, said they want congress to stop the sequester, stop these cuts. but i just have to be honest with you. there are too many republicans in congress right now who refuse to compromise even an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes and special interest tax breaks. and that's what's holding things up right now. keep in mind nobody's asking them to raise income tax rates. all we're asking is to consider closing tax loopholes and deductions that the speaker of the house, john boehner, said he was willing to do just a few months ago. he said there were a bunch of loopholes and deductions you could close. said you could raise $800 billion, $1 trillion by closing loopholes. we're not even asking for that much. all we're asking is that they close loopholes for the well-off and well connected, for hedge fund managers or oil companies or corporate jet owners who are all doing very well and don't need these tax loopholes so we
ground and work together as adults, john mccain's calling him an ex-republican. >> stephanie: they cannot get over he was right about iraq. >> oh, totally. >> stephanie: remember representative walter jones, republican of north carolina? he was the freedom fries guy. that guy. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] he suggested to a libertarian group that former vice president dick cheney will end up in a fiery place for his role in the iraq war. he said congress will not hold anyone to blame. lyndon johnson is probably rotting in hell. he probably needs to move over for dick cheney. >> stephanie: that's freedom fries. >> i want to send that guy some french fries. where can we send them from? with a copy of an -- a biography of thomas jefferson about the time he spent in france reading the koran. >> stephanie: tony in florida you're on with hal. hi tony. >> caller: how are you? >> stephanie: good. >> caller: good, can you hear me all right? >> stephanie: yep. go ahead. >> caller: i didn't know if you had seen anything yet but collier county, florida which is down south florida naples area -- >>
